Adelbert de Smet is a Belgian criminal. He arranged an auction for a diamond that was attended by most of the criminal organizations in Europe as well as Chuck Bartowski and Agent Rye of the CIA. The diamond, however, was a fake, and it concealed a microdot with CIA intel - that was what was really being sold.

He appears to have known Chuck was the Intersect as revealed in the microdot, which explained the array of international criminals who tried to purchase the diamond in the first place.

The Belgian kidnapped Chuck after having killed Agent Rye in "Chuck Versus the Fear of Death". The episode ends with the Belgian threatening Chuck's life with a poison needle.

He resurfaced in "Chuck Versus Phase Three", where he had his scientist Dr. Mueller attempt to have Chuck use the suppressed Intersect, only to fail countless times. Chuck is put kept heavily sedated throughout this, and is constantly having induced dreams tempered with the people in his life asking him to flash.

The Belgian, wanting results, grows tired of it, and eventually orders 'Phase Three,' where Chuck's memories and personality would be wiped out leaving nothing except for the Intersect.

After Sarah discovered Chuck's whereabouts in Thailand, she, followed by Morgan and Casey, assault the Belgian's compound. He is then knocked unconscious by an enraged Sarah who then coaxes Chuck back from the brink of oblivion.

With the Belgian's plan foiled, he is taken into custody by the CIA along with his tame scientist.
